Deadly Intersection To Get Crosswalks

The family of a teenager killed while crossing a dangerous intersection in the east has learned that intersection will finally get some much needed upgrades.

The N.C. Department of Transportation awarded a contract to install crosswalks on Western Boulevard and Country Club Road in Jacksonville. That's near the same location where 16-year-old Talissa Hatchell was run over and killed while crossing the road back in 2009.

Richard Hatchell - the grandfather of Talissa- said he's happy to see something is being done to protect pedestrians.

Work can begin as early as April 11 and be completed by November 18th.

    Doubt it will get used very much. The folks in that area cross where they want to.
